Elephants are treated poorly.
People are treated poorly.
The planet is treated poorly.
We can do better. Much better.
Elephants–don’t you wish you’d never seen this photo? Unfortunately, you can’t unsee it.
But you can do something about it.
You can become aware that this is not the only Elephant in the Room.
Once you’ve become aware, you can begin to identify the elephants, not only in your room, but all of those controversial topics that no one wants to deal with or confront.
As you read the book The Elephant in the Room, you will begin to identify with the lower caste and the prejudice that they face in Indonesia. Outlawed, yet, the culture of discrimination persists.
Reading puts that awareness in your body and in your spirit–and your mind then want to do something, anything, to begin to combat it.
Indonesia too far away to identify with?
Are you American?
If so, think about the plight of the Native Americans.
Just like the chaining of an elephant’s leg restricting its freedom, so the U.S. Government restricted those who had lived and prospered in America for thousands of years by restricting them to reservations.
Many improvements have occurred recently, and will continue, but reservations still exist.
We need to change. Adapt. Accept and embrace those who are different from us.
So here goes: Sign up for the monthly newsletter. Email me, the author of The Elephant in the Room, directly with comments, critique, helpful ideas for action. And read please.
You will understand so much more about those pesky, intelligent, powerful animals who inhabit this planet with us.
And much, much more.
We can do better–much better.
